Worth setting half an hour aside to watch this interview. Professor Donald Forrester speaks to Isabelle Trowler (Chief Social Worker for Children and Families, England) about his research into what makes good social work practice, and how that can be used to improve outcomes for children and families.
Also in the interview Donald discusses his new role as Professor of Child and Family Social Work at Cardiff University, and Director of CASCADE, The Children’s Social Care Research and Development Centre.
Really interesting interview – worth watching as a team.
